Volunteers are
the heart of our ministry

Caring church volunteers allow Love INC to fulfill its mission: “to mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.” When they walk alongside their neighbors, healthy relationships grow, holistic help happens, and reciprocal transformation is possible. Could you step into your strengths and serve those who are struggling in your community?

Connect With A Coordinator

Ask about one-time projects and ways to explore Love INC by connecting with our Outreach Coordinator.

It is important to Love INC MoCo that Love INC volunteers are Christians who are plugged into a local church and have a desire to humbly serve others in the Name of Christ. We have many ways that you can help. Let us know how you would like to be “mobilized” and what resources, talents, and skills God has gifted you with that you desire to share with others. As brothers and sisters in Christ, working together to serve those around us, the message, hope, and love of Jesus is experienced as lives are impacted and transformed! Be a part of the team and make a difference!
Here are a few ministries we are looking for volunteers in:

Connection Center

“…‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

Each day, a wide variety of people call the Love INC office with a need. These calls are answered by caring volunteers who listen to understand people’s situations and direct them to the most appropriate source of help. The Love INC Connection Center connects callers with a partner church, whose volunteers are able to serve those needs. In the process of meeting real needs, we find that people experience the love of Christ in practical ways. This can strengthen some in faith and for others, it creates a great relational gateway to come to know Jesus more fully.

Our Connection Center is run primarily by volunteers who are trained in taking calls, speaking with people about their need, and connecting people to a church community that can meet that need. If needs cannot be met through a local church, referrals are made to community resources. Do you have a loving, listening ear? Maybe God is prompting you to serve as a phone volunteer.

Connection Center Volunteer Requirements:

  • Organizational and administrative skills
  • Ease of conversation and comfortable talking on the phone
  • A heart for ministry and prayer with those in need

Budget Coaches and Mentors

Sometimes, you get off track and you need someone who cares to help get you back where you need to be, so that you can grow and succeed, and be all that God has created you to be! We need volunteers who would be willing to meet with neighbors, and coach them through goal setting and setting up a budget, offering a listening ear and godly financial guidance.
